Common Water Heater Issues
When you have no hot water, it is pretty clear that your water heater is not working properly. But what you might not know is that many issues can easily be repaired, rather than spending hundreds of dollars on a new water heater and installation. All traditional water heaters have a thermostat and heating element that can be replaced when they are worn out or damaged. There could also be an issue with the electric service or gas supply that is keeping your water heater from working properly. All of these problems are easy to determine and repair, thanks to the extensive training that each of the Drain Surgeon company professionals receives.
Water leaking from a water heater is also a common issue that is very upsetting to homeowners. But again, many leaks can be repaired for only a fraction of the cost of a new water heater. Leaks at a pipe connection, pipe fitting, or even in the pipe itself can all be repaired very easily and cost-effectively. And if the tank is leaking at the drain valve, that can also be repaired. The only leaks that are going to require a new water heater are the ones that are caused by rust and a breakdown of the tank itself. There is no way to patch a rusty tank that will be safe. A new water heater is the only true solution.
Finally, some issues will not impact the temperature of the water but can make the water look or smell bad. In these cases, the water is being contaminated by rust or other particles in the tank. If the cause is corrosion on the heating element inside the tank, then the solution can be a replacement heating element and tank cleaning. But when the tank is beginning to break down and rust inside, there is no option other than to replace the entire unit to ensure that your hot water is clean and safe.
Regardless of the issue that you are having with your water heater, know that when you call Drain Surgeon, only a licensed plumber will come to your home to access the issue and provide you with cost estimates and options to get your hot water restored.
The Different Types Of Water Heaters
There are two main types of water heaters. The first is the traditional model that uses a holding tank to heat the water. The tank heats a specific amount of water, and that is considered your available hot water. When the tank is emptied it refills, but it takes time for the tank to heat the newly supplied water. This style of water heater comes in two different configurations. One uses gas to heat the water, and the other uses electricity. Each one functions in the same manner, just using a different fuel.
The second type of water heater is called tankless or sometimes an on-demand water heater. These units have no holding tank, and only heat water when you turn on a water fixture. The water is then heated as it runs through the pipe on the way to your sink, tub, or shower. Tankless water heaters are also offered in both gas and electric models.
The benefit of calling Drain Surgeon when you have an issue with your water heater is that our professionals are factory trained to service all brands and types of water heaters.
